I assume that Robert has had affairs, and probably quite a few.  He's not the kind of guy to talk about things like that in public, but if you look at his lifestyle and some of his song lyrics, it's pretty hard to imagine that he hasn't had an affair.  The Cure started in the late 70's.  He's been on the road, drinking, taking drugs, surrounded by women almost his entire adult life.  Seriously think about it.  It would be almost absurd to think that he never had sex with someone else.  I can believe that Paul McCartney only slept with his wife Linda while they were married because they were constantly together, and besides, Paul had girlfriends before Linda, and plenty of chances for one-night stands.  Robert on the other hand has been with Mary since they were about 14.  They never got married until they were like 40.  Again, Robert's been away from Mary a lot.  The onus is on proving that Robert hasn't had an affair  (and I'm guessing several), not on proving that he has.  That's how I see it.  The guy obviously likes women.
